I love horror movies. My first encounter with a horror movie was when I was only a kid of about 7 or 8 years spending the night with my grandfather. Every time I would stay with him, we would go to the local Hastings and pick out a couple of movies to watch. (Anybody here remembering renting movies?) Every time I went into a movie rental store, the first place I would go would be the horror section. My parents would never let me watch any scary movies, because apparently, The Exorcist and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre were “not good” for my mind.
Today I had a big surprise waiting for me. One of Aikido Journal’s Facebook fans was kind enough to send me the following link of a Japanese-language movie whose English title is: The Power of Aikido. Being curious, I clicked on the link and lo and behold saw the figure of the Second Doshu Kisshomaru Ueshiba doing a stylized randori demonstration as the introduction to a commercial Japanese martial arts movie. When the title came on in Japanese, I was stunned: 激突合気道 (Gekitotsu Aikido, literally “Crash Aikido”). I had been looking for this film for 34 years! “34 year-old mystery solved!” by Stanley Pranin
